Subject RE: [firebird-support] Do backups run within a transaction?
Author Thomas Steinmaurer
One of the strength of Firebird is that it allows online
backups, that means when a database is in use, by using
gbak or the Services API.

Yes, the entire backup process runs in its own transaction
with an snapshot isolation level. Everything that was
committed at the time the backup started will be included
in the resulting backup file.
